You'd think their Dosais are crispy-- NOT! You'd think the stuffing would make up for it?-- Not. The sambhar served was barely lukewarm. The staff that greeted us went and sat somewhere in a remote corner and never enquired once if we needed anything-- not even napkins or water refills. On a Friday night, there was not a single soul... More

Food was delicious and definitely worth the price for the amount of food that I got. Service was friendly and rather quick.

I've honestly never eaten at the restaurant but their takeout is very tasty. My only complaint is the plastic wrap that they place on the takeout dishes makes it very difficult access. Their Sag Paneer however is well worth the wait, and their Garlic Naan is the best in town (even with delivery time factored in).

We tried some new dishes at this Indian restaurant and thought they were pretty tasty, if a little spicy. This is the first Indian restaurant I have been to where they did not ask our preferred spice level. It is a completely vegetarian restaurant, so the whole menu is there for your choosing. We selected some new dishes for us... More

We went to this restaurant because we were helping our daughter during a move to Austin and wanted to introduce her and her new roommates to south Indian cuisine. since our guests did not know what to order, we thought it would be nice to order the Chef's dinner so everyone could try a variety of dishes. Well, first the... More

The doses are wonderful. The chutneys and sambhar are tasty. We especially loved their spring dosa. Their lunch buffet is fantastic if you like South Indian food.north Indian dishes are not their speciality.

Previously it was nice but now spoiled a lot in food taste, ambiance and service. Some time even stale food is served. No Indian spicy taste at all

We are visiting Austin and so rely on reviews for our next place to eat. We went to this resto as it's got 4 star reviews. But we were so disappointed. We came for dinner and ordered meal for 2. The soup was horrible like it's chalky/ reheat and served us stale toppings. The curries were a joke. My hubby... More
